The only difference I know of between ESB and RotJ Fett are the colors on the gauntlets.  In Jedi one is red instead of the green/blue color.  There are probably more though.

That "Hasbro beauty pic" is amazing. The deco is phenomenal--and that's saying something on a white-on-white costume.

This is the first 6" to tempt me, I can't wait to see what the production pieces look like.

Yeah, it should come out nice. I guess this was probably farther down my list than some of the other options but I'll definitely be picking one up. I hope this does very well for Walgreen's and we see more stuff like this in the future. I know exclusives can be a drag, but it's also a good avenue to release some interesting repaints or kitbashes that might otherwise never get produced.

If Walgreen's pricing is like everywhere else, I'm all for it...  I find it sort of odd, but I'm all for it.  There's like a billion Walgreen's stores around me (and seemingly everyone else), so it seems like finding what you want shouldn't be too hard anyway.  Unless each store gets like one guy (queue the sinister Hasbro giggling).

They have it at $19.99, hopefully it holds out there.

I meant in general, I wouldn't mind seeing more of that simply because Walgreens are everywhere...  That'd be good for us, haha.  Buuuuutttttttttt, I can't say I have a lot of positive hope that this will hold at $19.99.  Just seems too good to be true.

The more 6" does stuff like this though?  The more I see 4" going the way of the dinosaur, in terms of collector-focused figures.  I feel like what we're seeing is the death throws of a smaller collector line.  Think Hasbro wants to go all 6", start fresh, keep 4" a kid-focused line with MS/Legends.

This Fett feels like a blow to 4" TBS in some capacity...  it's sort of irrational because there's no real evidence, just smells like that may be around the corner to me.

So...this is coming in a special assortment with Darth Vader, Jedi Luke, the Black Pauldron Stormtrooper and the Stormtrooper? (as per JediInsider)

Interesting if true. This sounds a lot like that online case assortment that was recently "cancelled".

If these are supposed to hit in the next month or so though, that sure doesn't seem to leave much time or space for the Clone Trooper/Anakin wave.

That dents the, "this may be easy to get" theory.

That cancelled online case had 3x Fetts and eight figures total. Hopefully that ratio will be what arrives at Walgreens and each store will get at least one case.

Seeing as how there's a Walgreen's 5 minutes away from every other Walgreen's, I'm hoping this guy will be super easy to track down.  I wish they were just getting cases full of Fett though.  That other stuff will clog their pegs fast.

I've hit up random Walgreens around town over the past few weeks for random stuff and each time I hit the toy section just because... I know there are a gazillion Walgreens on every corner but I have no idea how this is even going to work because Walgreens' toy aisle is pitiful at best.

I believe I heard the SW figures are going to be in its own cardboard display.  Correct me if I'm wrong, if someone knows differently.

I find it interesting that Walgreens in the US is also going to carry a Doctor Who 3.75 inch figure as well in the coming months. It'll be curious to see how this exclusive thing works out for them over all.

Not sure if this has been posted in here yet... just saw it as I was catching up on some stuff from last week - boxed photo and listing at Walgreens.com:

According to Walgreens, this is due to arrive 9/2.

I predict this will be the next new 6" figure anyone finds in a store. Which means we will be getting Vader, Jedi Luke, and the Black Pauldron Sandtrooper before Anakin and the Clone Trooper, which should have been out months ago.  ::)
